Congratulations Debra and Kate on the launch of “Flourishing Mothers”. You have done a beautiful job of bringing the science of Positive Psychology to life for mothers! As a mother myself I know the challenges we face in investing in our own well-being when we’re very focused and concerned about our baby’s, children’s and whole family well-being. As science is discovering, an investment in your own well-being pays off in a big way to everyone around you! Your positivity and well-being becomes contagious and others can’t not be affected by it!
